Product Description

Set within a wider socio-political and religious context this book takes a close look at the impact of the 1859 revival on the town of Coleraine on the north coast of Ireland. The salient features of the revival are outlined, the views of supporters as well as critics discussed and analysed. This book is one of the first detailed accounts, based largely upon archival and other primary source material, of the impact of the 1859 revival on a local community in the north of Ireland. This revival is described by Railton as the"most explosive repercussion of the American Revival".(Referring to the Revival which took place in America 1857-1858). In this area there was a real enthusiasm to expect great things from God with people committing themselves to daily prayer meetings. Nick Railton tells the story of how simple people communicated a simple message in simple words which led to 100,000 men, women,and children being converted.

In this area there was a real enthusiasm to expect great things from God with people committing themselves to daily prayer meetings. Nick Railton tells the story of how ordinary people communicated a simple message in simple words which led to 100,000 men, women and children being converted.

The Message of the Revival: "At the centre of the revival message stood Christ, the Eternal Son of God, and His work of redemption on the cross of Calvary. His saving works then, His sanctifying work now, His work of judgement in the future. Jesus is portrayed not simply as a good teacher or prophet, but as the Lord of history who is coming back soon. He is the One who has conquered death and the devil; His followers are part of a conquering band, marching to a better land." Nick Railton

Editorial Reviews

"This work is a valuable addition to the literature on this "season of revival," a revival that Harvard historian Perry Miller called "The Event of the Century." I heartily endorse it!"
"This volume provides a penetrating insight into a fascinating instance of the strange and wonderful workings of God."
"Revival on the Causeway Coast is a fascinating and gripping story retold by an author whose insights and conclusions are refreshingly open and honest. An absorbing read, this well-researched volume is one that I found impossible to put down."
Here is an historical record which will focus the mind and revive the soul. It is God's story, for revival always is. It is a human story of repentance forgiveness hope and new life. The Gospel is not about impotence but about impact and permanent eternal change. This study is about an injection of Gospel truth and life which the Church and the world desperately needs today. May it be widely read, thoroughly enjoyed and more importantly used by God to light flames of revival which will spread like Divine fire into dry and hard hearts. In this year of the 150th anniversary of the 1859 Revival here is a timely reminder of the greatness holiness and power of God. This is a story of hope. It should come with a health warning...that when God moves, nothing can stop Him! We have been warned! Hallelujah!
